clearly, they were terrified of me, guilty about all the chomping they've done in my garden
yes, so afraid -- I mean, I'm not using a telephoto lens. That's me, getting up close and personal with the bambis. . . Finally, though, they moved along, having eaten as much as they wanted, and I went back into my yard, past these little tulips happily un-munched outside the gate. Pleased to see they were spared for the moment.
I'm not sure what their plan was, but it seemed to be stymied when they got to this point
and then they turned 'round and headed away to whichever garden they had designs on next.
Annoying as they are when they eat the blossom I'm waiting to see open, chez moi they can have carte blanche.
